Finding solutions to ER issue Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

At a meeting held in Princeton on Thursday, July 12 with Interior Health Authority and the Stakeholders Table (Similkameen Valley Representatives’ Table) Acting Mayor Jason Earle and RDOS Area representative Brad Hope, developed a funding solution with a program called REEF (Rural Emergency Enhancement Fund). It is hoped that by accessing these funds that 24/7 Emergency Room (ER) services will be restored to the Princeton General Hospital. Industry has put forward bridge-funding as a temporary stop-gap measure to assist in the acquisition of locums to cover the ER until REEF funding is in place. The Stakeholders Table has been working actively to come up with solutions to the doctor recruitment and retention issue. One of the solutions decided upon was providing a residence for locums. During the regular meeting of council on Monday, July 16 a motion was passed by Coun. Maynard and seconded by Coun. Harkness to lease a home for locums. The motion was carried. It was agreed by council to enter into a lease agreement with Fred and Company Builders Inc., to lease a townhouse, fully furnished and maintained for $2200 per month. Cost for which to be split between the Town of Princeton and the RDOS. Acting Mayor Jason Earle stated that their goal was to have this complete by August 1 and that he was “very pleased to be working together with the RDOS.” Finding solutions to the immediate ER situation is top priority for the Stakeholders Table, however they are working on long term solutions at the same time.

Coalmont Hotel Centennial This year the historic Coalmont Hotel is celebrating its 100th birthday and everyone of the age of majority (19+ years) is invited to the party on July 27 and 28. A century ago, when the town of Coalmont was first started by the Columbia Coal company, one of the first buildings to go up was the Coalmont Hotel. After all, they needed rooms for prospective buyers and - a place to drink. Hosts Michelle Cole and Gerry Hampton extend an invitation to everyone to come join the two day party celebrating the survival of this authentic old west hotel and saloon which has proudly served visitors to Coalmont and the Tulameen Mining District since 1912. Music will be provided by The New Fish, an Irish/East-Coast band from Vancouver who will be playing both Friday and Saturday night.

Saturday afternoon there will be a barbecue and a $10 dinner at 6 p.m., in the evening. For more information please visit www. CoalmontHotel.com or call 250-295-6066.

Eau Vivre Winery’s 2009 Pinot Noir wins Lieutenant Governor Award CAWSTON – Eau Vivre Winery’s 2009 Pinot Noir was just awarded a very prestigious 2012 Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in British Columbia Wines. Located in Cawston, in the heart of the Similkameen Valley, Eau Vivre is a familyrun boutique winery owned and operated by Dale Wright and Jeraldine Estin. Dale and Jeri moved from Saskatchewan to the Similkameen to pursue their dreams of owning and operating a winery. They established Eau Vivre Winery in 2007. Wright, coproprietor and wine maker for Eau Vivre commented, “We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to win this award. And honestly, I think Jeri and I have both been in shock since hearing the news. As a relative newcomer in the wine making world, this honour shows us that we are on the right path. We have had an incredible amount of support from other wine makers in the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys and we owe a debt of gratitude to so many that have helped us get to where we are today. To be recognized with a Lieutenant Governor’s Award alongside the nine other celebrated wineries is an incredible source of pride for our team.” For the full list of winners or for more information visit http://www.ltgov.bc.ca/ ltgov/wine-awards.htm. “Our 2009 Pinot Noir was produced from grapes grown in esteemed vineyards on Upper Bench Road in Keremeos. After fermentation, this wine rested for 18 months in a blend of French and American oak barrels,” explained Wright who was the wine maker for this vintage with the help of assistant wine maker Spencer Kelly. Only 253 cases of the 2009 Pinot Noir were produced.

The Honourable Steven Point, Lieutenant Governor of BC, will visit Eau Vivre Winery on Friday, July 27, to present “The Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in British Columbia Wines”. He will be accompanied by 35 members of the Vancouver Consul Corps. “We plan to officially release our 2009 vintage at a release party at our winery on July 27 from 4 p.m., to 6 p.m. Neighbours, friends and fellow wine lovers are invited to celebrate this special occasion with us with a tasting and some appetizers on our winery patio. We will have this vintage available for purchase starting that afternoon. Commemorative signed bottles will be available for purchase at the release party,” Estin explained. “We are pretty excited,” Wright commented. And with good reason. Not only is this Eau Vivre’s first Lieutenant Governor’s Award, it’s the first time in the 10 year history of the awards that a winery from the Similkameen Valley has won a Lieutenant Governor’s Award. On top of that, this year’s competition was the largest ever with 347 wines submitted. Wright added, “The Similkameen is producing some amazing grape and fruit wines and our wine region is starting to receive a tremendous amount of recognition and awards. We are honoured to work together as a collective with other Similkameen wineries in the Similkameen Wineries Association to help increase awareness of our very special wine region. Eau Vivre Winery offers Frenchstyle small-batch, hand-crafted wines ranging from light, crisp whites to big, full reds. For more information on Eau Vivre, visit their website at www. EauVivreWinery.ca, call 250-4992655 or follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Rosemary Doughty came to Princeton in 1997. She worked with Interior Health Authority running the Cindy Parolin Safe Homes Program and as a the Public Victim Service Manager until the end of October, 2009. Doughty has experience working in the immigration sector and is currently employed as an administrative assistant at the Princeton and District Community Skills Centre. Doughty feels that she has developed a great deal of knowledge and understanding of community needs on many levels; family, legal, trauma, immigration and employment to name a few—her career has given her experience in all of these areas. “I believe that Princeton is long overdue for a change,” she said. Doughty said she feels this quite strongly and needed to throw her hat in the ring— and step up to the plate. Although Doughty has no prior experience serving on council, she does have an understanding of the municipal process. Processes can be learned, said Doughty, “character, honesty, integrity and strong ethics are much more difficult to learn.” If elected as mayor, Doughty says that she will be available and accessible to the community. She offers the ability to listen to concerns and is goal orientated and will work hard to achieve the goals of this community. “There are a lot of issues going on that the mayor needs to be involved in,” she said. Working with the Save Our Hospital Coalition, improving the quality of life for our seniors, improving infrastructure, road improvements, affordable housing—the list goes on. “I want to dedicate myself to this.” Doughty believes that being cooperative is a standard when serving on council and is necessary for serving the greater good. She says she believes in win/win effort that needs to be adhered to at all times. Should conflict arise Doughty said, “It will be my mandate to work effectively and cooperatively to accelerate positive outcomes over personal conflicts in order to serve the common good.” If elected, Doughty plans to be a proactive mayor, acting between the town office and the community for a unified relationship. To contact Rosemary Doughty, email rosemary@ rosemaryd.com and learn more about her by visiting www.rosemaryd.com.

Frank Armitage was raised in Princeton and his wife Darnella was born and raised here as well. Armitage has had 38 years of experience in the Human Resources side of the mining business and has enjoyed the Canadian experience living on both coasts during his career. Armitage served as a councillor in Stewart B.C. for 6 years and on the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District for five years. Since returning home, Armitage says he has enjoyed serving on town council and having the SVPS, Chamber of Commerce, Princeton Museum and the Fire Department portfolois. “It has been very rewarding to see the achievements each group has enjoyed,” he said. “Princeton has a whole host of service clubs, activity sponsors, special event organizers—all who contribute so much to making our community the outstanding success that it is.” Armitage feels fortunate to work with the Copper Mountain Mining team. He values his association with them and plans to continue on a reduced basis as required if he is elected. Armitage feels that his experience as a councillor has taught him a great deal about municipal processes, team building, meeting financial budgets and time frames—well qualifying him to serve as mayor. “Undoubtedly, the biggest crisis I have seen our community face is the Princeton General Hospital 24/7 ER situation,” said Armitage. “I commend Jason Earle, Brad Hope and the entire Stakeholders group who are doing an excellent job trying to find resolutions,” he added. “If elected, I would support them without question.” Armitage believes in parallel, that Princeton must move forward with its community, commercial and industrial development. He believes that one of the key needs in attracting and retaining younger people to our community lies in identifying what voids exist in the infrastructure and then setting a course of action to move ahead. The needs of our seniors must be brought to the forefront, not only the 24/7 ER and hospital care, but transportation to and from treatments must be addressed. “While I have no magic answers, there is nothing to stop us from finding them,” he said. All of this requires strong fiscal management from the mayor and council said Armitage, “I welcome the opportunity to work on behalf of all of our good citizens.”

Search for overdue motorcyclist ends with discovery of body Steve Arstad Keremeos/Okanagan Falls Review

RCMP detachments in both the North and Southeast District areas of the province were seeking the public’s assistance last week in locating missing person Dennis Gordon Gudmundson 61 years old, from Keremeos, B.C. Dennis Gordon Gudmundson had apparently been riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Gudmundson was reported overdue when he failed to arrive in Keremeos to the RCMP on July 8, at around 6 p.m. by a close friend, after he failed to arrive as planned.

On July 14, the Valemount RCMP were able to confirm that missing person, Dennis Gordon GUDMUNDSON had been located. The body of Mr Gudmundson and his motorcycle were located down an embankment on Highway 5, south of Valemount B.C. Valemount RCMP are currently investigating the incident. The RCMP offers their condolences to his family. Family and close friends have asked the RCMP to convey their deep appreciation for the efforts by the BC SAR professional volunteers and all others who helped in the search for Mr. Gudmundson.

Growing risk of cybercrime Penticton, B.C. – The recent virus scam that prompted the FBI to shut down a series of internet servers, cutting online access for more than 300,000 people across the globe, is a chilling reminder about the growing dangers of cybercrime. As more and more people turn to internet and mobile banking, fraudsters have switched their attentions to scams in the online realm. “Cybercrime is becoming increasingly sophisticated; extending its reach beyond traditional borders,” says John Holbrook, an information technology security expert with Valley First. “There have been a number of large scale security breaches recently that underscore the reach and seriousness of cybercrime. Fortunately, Canadians have been relatively unscathed by these attacks.” While Holbrook points out Canada has been lucky so far, he cautions businesses and individuals cannot become complacent. Online scams involving malware, Trojans and other malicious viruses that give fraudsters unauthorized access to their victims accounts are becoming more common. As a result, they are also becoming increasingly difficult to detect. “In the past, tellers dealt with counterfeit cheques and other more visible scams,” explains Holbrook. “Online crime is harder to monitor because there is often nothing tangible involved. It is usually perpetrated between the individual and the fraudster removing that extra set of eyes that in-branch banking provides.” Despite the headlines, online and mobile banking remains a safe and convenient option. There are also some tell-tale warning signs people should look out for, such as unusual or unexplained account transactions, transfers to pre-paid cards and ongoing system maintenance, especially on business accounts. “At Valley First, we tightly integrate different security mechanisms to best protect our member information,” says Holbrook. “We also stay on top of fraud trends and changes in the industry so we are in the best position to respond and adapt as new scams emerge.” People can also protect themselves at home by using up to date anti-virus and anti-malware software and being careful to open emails or download attachments from safe source, says Holbrook. “To get the best level of protection, steer clear of free anti-virus software. While the price might be right, the level of protection is probably wrong. Also, if you don’t recognize something, err on the side of caution and don’t click on it.” Valley First is a division of First West Credit Union, B.C.’s third-largest credit union, which has 37 branches and 29 insurance offices throughout the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Kitimat and Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson valleys. Led by Launi Skinner, First West has approximately $6.6 billion in assets under administration, more than 169,000 members and close to 1,400 employees.

TO THE PEOPLE OF PRINCETON I am the nominator for Doug Pateman and he asked me to assist him in writing a speech. I asked him to provide me with a speech in his own words. After reading it, I submit the following to the people of Princeton. This is Doug Pateman. BY THE WAY, I NEVER CHANGED A WORD. Ok Dean, you wanted a speech of who I am so here it is: I came here from Vancouver in 1976. My mother worked as a chamber maid in the Princeton Hotel and we lived in a house located in the liquor store parking lot. Coming from Vancouver’s veteran’s projects, I couldn’t wait to go back there when I was old enough. Went to the original high school for kindergarten, grade one to grade seven in Riverside Elementary. Now Riverside Community Center. High school in the “new high school” till grade 10. Sat with the same principal in the old high school as the new to discuss my future, left school and started working. Parents being who they are gave me one simple choice. Go to school, if you don’t, get a job and pay rent. So I got a job and paid rent. My first job was a dishwasher for Chris McClean at the bus depot. Went to D&W Mushroom Farm after, worked my ass off enough to earn the nickname Herc from packing pails of topsoil to fill each mushroom bed. Wasn’t too thrilled with the job and left, hopped from job to job till I got an apprenticeship with Pro Automotive as well as a job with Abba Towing. Worked insane hours in order to pay rent and support my wife and, at this time, four kids. I was paying child support to my son’s mother monthly and paying all bills until Jen got a job first at The Castle Resort. During all of this, I was a volunteer fireman from the age of 19 until I was thirty one. Jen left the castle and became a waitress at Santo’s which helped out immensely for bills just from her tips alone. A word about Jen, we met when I moved into my first apartment, she lived down the hall from me with her son Scott (my future step-son). Her brother lived right above her on the second floor and we had become good friends because of our common interest in 4x4 pickups and off-roading. Scott would come down the hall to my apartment when he wanted to see the guys and Jen would follow to make sure he didn’t get into trouble. We dated off and on for a while until we both were mature enough to actually commit to each other. Best choice I ever made and probably her worst. She doesn’t drink or smoke and can’t stand a mess. She has a strong personality which clashes at times with mine. Has my back through thick and thin. When I was diagnosed with cancer, never once did she cry in front of me. Went to all of my doctor’s appointments with me but never went into hysterics. She did her best to stay calm and wait until I was gone and she was alone before she broke down. In public she was calm and did her best to have all the answers. She left Santo’s to try her hand as a pharmacistís assistant which she loved every day. Because she was happy, I was happy. All kids were happy. Bills were being paid; houses were nicer, kids’ activities increased. I left Pro Auto and started working at Compliance Coal, first as a dump supervisor, which is a glorified title for flagger. I was then promoted to maintenance fairly quickly and from there to assay technician sampling coal and adjusting the specific gravity of the wash plant in order to float the coal and sink the rest. Greatest job ever!! Then when the coalmine closed, I took a whole weekend off and started working at Mac’s Auto as a counter person selling parts. There I developed my ability to deal with complete strangers over the phone and treat them as if they were my long lost best friend. With that I developed a sales skill to be able to walk into a room of strangers and give them a sales pitch as to why they should buy from Mac’s Auto and more specifically from me. With that, I ended up making three sales pitches to The Gisborne Group trying to convince them to buy locally and to not call anyone but me for their construction needs. In return, The Gisborne Group gave me a sales pitch as to why I should come to work for them as an equipment manager. The only thing they really needed to tell me was the wage. If you remember, at that time I purchased a house just before the market went nuts, so I needed a job that offered a little more. With no mentor and no previous equipment manager to turn to, I created that position and ran it as my own. I’m not so arrogant as to say it was perfect but I can at least say that I was the only office manager who never got laid off or dismissed throughout the entire two and a half year project. I was cutting purchase orders for over two hundred thousand dollars and having my boss tell me that if I thought it was right, to push it through. I managed over one hundred equipment operators, a full complement of maintenance personnel as well as assistants. Now that was the best job ever! Not the being the boss but being part of a process that truly made a difference on a day to day basis. I enjoyed every day of that job until the very end. After that I had a whole four days off. At the end of those four days, I became a light duty mechanic for Copper Mountain Mine. I have worked with them for over a year now and have been able to accomplish much. I now am the president of Highway Rescue, my daughter Megan is now Princeton Ambassador, Jen and I are now grand-parents, and I find myself running for town council! Now, as to why I’m running for council, I believe in Princeton’s potential. I really do. This town has the potential to be truly great and by that I mean we have the ability to attract families who want to move here. If we can do this, we can and will attract doctors and their families who will want to move here. If their families will want to move here, doctors will want the funding that is provided by a running and functioning emergency room. If we have a functioning ER, more families will want to move here, the more families, the more industry, the more growth, the possibilities are endless. Will everyone benefit? I’d like to think so, but reality dictates that you can never make everyone happy. Love to try though. How would I describe myself? Five simple words: caring, honest, reliable, strong and lastly, I believe intelligent. Is this enough to tell you about Doug Pateman? Hope so because that ís all you get. Best Regards, Douglas Pateman

SpotlightOPINION

BC pops cork on wine Staff Writer Penticton Western News

We have to applaud the latest move by the B.C. provincial government to start the process of freeing up trade in wine between Canada’s provinces. It was, perhaps, naive to have thought that once the federal government eliminated their 1928 prohibition on shipping wines between the provinces, consumers would be able to freely ship their favourite wines between provinces. Instead, jealous of their prerogatives, many provinces responded to the eagerly awaited change, either with regulations nearly as restrictive as the now defunct prohibition-era law, or by setting up committees to study what they should do. Even B.C., where both the ruling liberal party and the opposition NDP had spoken out in favour of eliminating the federal prohibition, government responded to the news that parliament had passed Bill C-311 with regulations limiting the quantity of wine a person could bring into the province, and outright forbidding internet sales and shipping. That changed when Rich Coleman, minister responsible for liquor, announced that B.C. was opening its borders to tariff-free direct shipping of wines for personal consumption, as long as they were grown and produced in the shipping province. The province can only regulate incoming shipments, so B.C. wineries are still unable to ship to other provinces; while it may have take a few weeks — really, moving very quickly for government — B.C. has boldly stepped away from the pack. “Today, we encourage other jurisdictions to take immediate steps to reciprocate by opening up their borders and allow all Canadians to order wine over the Internet,” said Coleman. “British Columbia is prepared to take the lead on opening up the Canadian marketplace for our world-renowned B.C. wineries.” We can only hope that B.C.’s leadership in this area will encourage other provinces to recognize the realities and opportunities of living in an wired world and begin to lower the barriers on their sides of the border.

Changes clarify refund policies for care Paying in advance for care - whether it’s for child care or residential care - is not uncommon in B.C. Finding a place that provides the type of care required close to home can be quite onerous and when a place is found, a deposit is often required. But what if something unexpected happens and care is no longer needed? Many British Columbians have prepaid for care without knowing the facility’s refund policy, which can cause unnecessary stresses on families if a refund is later needed. The B.C. government has made changes to the residential care regulation and the child care licensing regulation under the Community Care and Assisted Living Act regarding prepayment agreements. Now, those looking for care will be provided with information on what portion of their deposit will be refunded if the need arises. And those who pay for care in advance are entitled to a written statement informing them about the facility’s refund policy. These changes will help seniors and families make informed decisions and will ensure no one else has to go through what Ricky Spooner did. The Sidney resident and his wife paid a deposit of $8,000 to move into a residential care facility, but when his wife died before they could make the move, Mr. Spooner was denied a refund by the facility. After seeking assistance through the Consumer Protection Branch, Mr. Spooner got some of the deposit back. Seniors and families with questions or concerns about prepayment should contact the Patient Care Quality Office in their regional health authority. While it is best to raise concerns at the time and place where care is being provided, sometimes this may not be possible. Patient Care Quality Offices exist in each health authority to help patients, clients and residents resolve concerns or complaints regarding services and the quality of care they have received. People can call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 any time of the day

or night or go online to www.healthlinkbc.ca for information on how to contact health supports andre sources. Hearing impaired services are also available by dialling 7-1-1. The Seniors Health Care Support Line is intended to supplement existing care concern avenues to help seniors and their families who have experienced issues accessing health-care services or with the health care they received. This toll-free phone line is available Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by calling 1 877 952-3181 or 250 952-3181 in Victoria. It is important that our home and community care system is modernized so that it continues to meet seniors’ needs. The B.C. government will work with seniors, health authorities and care providers to review our system and ensure consistent standards of care are met throughout the province. We are doing all that and more through the B.C. government’s seniors action plan that was announced Feb. 14, 2012. A key part of this action plan is the creation of a seniors’ advocate. We are looking for British Columbians’ input on the role and function of the Office of the Seniors’ Advocate, including how the office could collaborate with existing organizations. Until July 31, 2012, you can provide your say in writing to: Seniors Action Plan Ministry of Health PO Box 9825, STN PROV GOV Victoria, B.C. V8W 9W4 or by emailing: SeniorsAdvocate@gov.bc.ca Through Improving Care for B.C. Seniors: An Action Plan, the B.C. government is building a more accessible, transparent and accountable approach to seniors’ care. This action plan contains specific deliverables to help seniors and their families navigate the health system, easily access information about care options and receive assistance to resolve concerns.

Why don’t we advertise the park? Dear Editor; Ever since the Water Park was installed at the Rotary Park on Lime Street I have called Town Office and the Rec. Director about signage for said park. There is no signage on our highway to indicate the water park exists, with the exception of the display on Hwy. 3W coming down into town, mind you it does not say there is a water park or where it is.

Who’s selling out Canada Post? Summer’s here; let’s talk garage sales. When you hold a garage sale, people swoop down for the steals and ignore the rest. Similarly, some pundits want the government to privatize or deregulate Canada Post, which would allow private interests to skim the cream off the Crown corporation, conveniently ignoring that those profitable parts pay for the unprofitable parts. Canada Post has the largest retail network in the country with enviable brand recognition. When CEO Deepak Chopra took the helm, he vowed to leverage this network, but has done little beyond promoting Epost. In the absence of any vision for the future of Canada Post, the baying for privatization and deregulation is getting louder. Piecemeal privatization already happens when traditional post offices close, replaced by counters in pharmacies and convenience stores. These counters and the poorly paid workers staffing them come and go at the whim of the private operator, making it difficult for the post office to be as accountable as it should be. As for deregulation, the government deregulated international letters in 2010 and we’ll probably see a push for further deregulation during the review of the Canadian Postal Services Charter in 2014. But where is this push coming from? Not from the public. In 2008, 69% opposed deregulation. Even last summer, when Canada Post management locked out 50,000 workers, 65% opposed privatization at a time when public disenchantment with the post office should have been at an all-time high. If most Canadians don’t want to sell their post office, who does? Just a handful, but they’re obsessive about it. Michael Warren, a former Canada Post CEO, frequently beats the privatization drum and recently used the corporation’s first loss in 17 years to do so again, failing to mention that the dip was due to one-time payments. There’s also Edward M. Iacobucci and Michael J. Trebilcock of the right-wing CD Howe Institute, who

extol privatization as some kind of magical pixie dust. Vague success stories and vaguer claims of efficiency shouldn’t fool us. Very few national post offices have successfully been privatized. Britain and Japan are currently attempting it, but it’s proving bumpier than anticipated. The Netherlands sold its courier network TNT to UPS for a one-time cash injection; the remaining chaos has families sorting tottering piles of the public’s mail on kitchen dishracks. Privatization in the Netherlands is an unmitigated disaster as in Argentina, which renationalized its post office. Deregulation hasn’t worked well either, even at New Zealand Post, which owes its success to its popular postal bank. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has been advocating that Canada Post consider restoring an expanded public postal savings bank as a way to deal with its financial challenges. Our national postal system must take into account Canada’s huge landmass and the remoteness of many communities. Here’s where the privatization pushers collide with the reality that service to these communities would be, in the words of the CD Howe think-tankers, “relaxed.” Stop to consider what that really means. Currently, Canada Post delivers “from anywhere to anyone,” from busy urban centres to the rural mailbox on a two-lane highway. Were this obligation to be “relaxed,” it’s unclear exactly how rural residents would get mail. Their answer is a “targeted subsidy” for unprofitable routes, incentives for private companies such as UPS or FedEx to deliver. How would this cost less or be more “efficient” than the current universal postal service? Both FedEx and UPS already use Canada Post for “lastmile delivery” to remote customers. Needless duplication not only raises costs, it increases pollution. What’s efficient about that? Canada Post isn’t the financial disaster that those with privatization and deregulation agendas would have you believe. But mail volumes continue to decline. We need some real vision from Chopra, with the best interests of the people of Canada as a guiding principle, not a “Garage Sale” sign.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE? Take Control. Julie Traballo

Jennifer Gillcash

Why measure blood pressure? Blood pressure is the force on the artery walls as your blood circulates in the body. Top number indicates when your heart contracts and pumps blood. Bottom number indicates when your heart relaxes and fills with blood. The higher the numbers and the longer they are high, the more damage is caused to your blood vessels. This can damage the heart, potentially resulting in stroke, heart attack, heart or kidney failure. What should your blood pressure be? Blood Pressure Level (mmHg)

(NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Contrary to what some people believe, having asthma does not mean you cannot exercise. In fact, several of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympic athletes have asthma and can still compete in their chosen sport. The problem, according to Chris Haromy, certified respiratory educator for the Ontario Lung Association, is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;some people with asthma do not understand how to manage their condition well, and end up with exercise-induced symptoms.â&#x20AC;? This lack of understanding of how asthma should be managed can prevent some people from exercising and playing sports. This is a big problem in this video game, couch potato age where obesity rates are on the rise and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more important for kids to stay active. Exercising can also be a fun part of a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy social life. According to Haromy most people with asthma can exercise at the highest level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have asthma and you have problems exercising, you need to ask yourself these following questionsâ&#x20AC;? Is your asthma under control? Do you: â&#x20AC;˘ Have to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) more than 3 times a week? â&#x20AC;˘ Have daytime asthma symptoms more than 3 days a week? â&#x20AC;˘ Ever have difficulty exercising or playing sports because of asthma? â&#x20AC;˘ Wake up one or more nights a week because of your asthma? â&#x20AC;˘ Miss any school or work days because of your asthma? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you answer â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to all of these questions, your asthma is under

control,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you answer â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? to ANY of these questions, your asthma is not under control and you should see your health care provider to discuss what you can do.â&#x20AC;? Here are some tips from the Ontario Lung Association on what you can do to avoid problems: â&#x20AC;˘ Warm up first and start exercising slowly. â&#x20AC;˘ If you need to take a reliever inhaler before exercising, it should be taken about 10-15 minutes before the activity. Most people with well controlled asthma should not need a reliever inhaler before exercising. If you are someone who needs a reliever inhaler more than three times per week, be sure to work with your health care provider to get your asthma as well controlled as possible. â&#x20AC;˘ Move your exercise indoors if air pollution, allergens or extreme weather aggravates your asthma. Recreational swimming is especially suited for people with asthma because indoor pools have warm, moist environments. However, some people are bothered by the pool

chemicals. â&#x20AC;˘ If you develop asthma symptoms while exercising, stop. Use your reliever inhaler and do not start again until your symptoms are completely gone. For more information about asthma, you can call the BC Lung Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lung Health Information Line at 1-800-665-LUNG (5864), email info@bc.lung.ca, or visit www.bc.lung.ca.

This is the second in a series of stories about some of the performers appearing at the Princeton Traditional Music Festival. The Festival begins on the evening of Friday, August 17 with the opening ceremony followed by a country-dance on Veterans’ Way beside the Legion. The dance will feature a live band with fiddle, guitar and concertina. Everyone is welcome. There will be a caller to teach the dances so no experience is necessary and people don’t even need to bring a partner. On Saturday and Sunday there will be music from 10 am until 6 p.m., on two stages – one on Veteran’s Square and one in front of the Museum. Last week’s article mentioned the Festival’s “Princetonograd” theme in honour of the many Eastern European immigrants who settled in Princeton during the 20th century. The Festival has been fortunate over the past several years in featuring our Member of Parliament, Alex Atamanenko, who grew up speaking Russian and who sings songs in that language. He will be singing at this year’s Festival again and will be joined by much other music from eastern Europe. Slovenia is a small country in the northeastern corner of the Adriatic Sea between Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary. This year’s Festival features two groups of Slovenian performers. You will recognize them in the streets of the town because of their beautiful and colourful costumes. Choir Slovenia from Vancouver is a mixed adult acapella choir that began in 1955 when the first post-war Slovenian immigrants started to organize themselves. They sing an exclusively Slovenian folksong repertoire from different regions of their homeland, together with sacred songs. The choir participates regularly in Slovenian Society functions and church services. They are one of the few Slovenian choirs in western Canada keeping up the singing tradition of their homeland. The Vancouver Slovenian Society was founded in 1958 and the Slovenian Folklore Dancers began in 1964. The group performs dances from various parts of Slovenia, some very traditional and some choreographed more recently. They are always accompanied by an accordionist playing traditional tunes. Their costumes are of the style worn in

CRIMSON TINE PLAYERS OF THE PRINCETON COMMUNITY ARTS COUNCIL

www .princ eton.c a 2012

Gorenjska, in the Julian Alps. They are active in the B.C. Slovenian community and have danced at festivals, cultural events and cultural and seniors’ centres. The group’s most recent performance tour of Slovenia took place in 2001. These are just two of the “Princetonograd” performers appearing at this year’s Princeton Traditional Music Festival and the best thing about it is it’s free! The reason it’s free is because it’s run entirely by volunteers and the performers are donating their talents. To make the festival a success the organizers will need lots of volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, please contact them. Even if you have only a couple of hours available your help would be most welcome. Give them a call and they’ll welcome you aboard. To find out more visit the Festival’s webblog at princetonfestival.org or give Jon and Rika a call at 295-6010.

Diamond Jubilee Tea held at Grist Mill These folks enjoyed a Diamond Jubilee Tea Sunday afternoon at The Keremeos Grist Mill and Gardens. Shai Snyder gave a dramatic reading from the 1890s diary of Julia Bullock-Webster. There were scones with rose petal jelly and two kinds of tea. There were Royal Pennants and Jubilee Pins for all. The celebration closed with a robust chorus of God Save The Queen.
